Preview of the Cover for the trade paperback of Gateway City vol. 1
The Gateway City trade paperback Kickstarter campaign is nearly ready for launch. Over the last few weeks I've been lining up some new content for the volume, including a foreword, introduction, re-edits, new content and some cool stretch goals. I've also painted a new cover for the volume (above). I'll start revealing a few details as we near the launch...

Such as...John Freeman (Marvel UK, Titan, Down the Tubes) is on board as editor. Over the last few months, John and I have been brushing up the script to make the book tighter. When I first started drawing Gateway City, it was somewhat improvisational, as I was publishing it online. There aren't any major changes, but I think the new script scans a little better and adds a bit more character development to the cast.

I'm also excited to announce that the first stretch goal for the Kickstarter campaign is an amazing print by my best-friend-in-comics-and-insanely-talented-artist-and-writer, Nick Prolix. Here's a little teaser of what he's putting together:

Stay tuned for more and in the meantime, thank you for your support. And thanks for backing the Little Heroes (amazing charity providing comic making kits for children with long-term illness) 2nd anthology (honored to have made the cover) and AccentUK's Enter the Asylum (which includes my art). And thank you for getting in touch about the work. I love hearing from you all.

All the best,

Russ
